  1. As The World Looks On

Lyrics

Running through the forest I’m so hungry and I'm cold
As the rocket shells light up the night a fear runs through my soul
I've been thinking about my sweetheart and our pretty little baby girl
They came to us one rainy night and ripped us from our home
The women and the children standing all alone
The men were cut down in the night, mama holds her baby so tight

The rain comes down as the world looks on
The pain goes on as the world looks on

Give to me a reason why your hatred runs so deep
How you can rape and kill your neighbor and ever go to sleep
Do you dream like other men do dream
With love and hope so true

You took my home, my wife and family
Ain't nothing left but the hope this pain will go away

The rain comes down as the world looks on
The pain goes on as the world looks on

All through the night under the moonlight I love you so
When this is all over, we will be together
Holding me, hold me, all through the night
As the world looks on, as the world looks on

The years go by, mama cries for her husband and her son
They're all buried up on the mountain side hidden from everyone
The trembling never goes away, it runs like a dirty river right through my soul
It makes no sense, it does no good to tell me they will learn
When halfway around the world it's someone else's turn
The men were cut down in the night, mama holds her baby so tight
The rain comes down as the world looks on
The pain goes on as the world looks on
